What do they make of the gridlocked top of the AFC North with the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers all vying for supremacy in one of the league's toughest divisions. The Houston Texans currently have their total set at 4.5 wins; is that an optimistic outlook for one of the league's most disappointing franchises?
